# How to display in-text citation in the “Author Year: page” format?

I was wondering how to make LaTex display my in-text citations in the following format: "some text some text some text (Name 2015: 23)."

I'm using the natbib-package and the bibliography style in my document is /bibliographystyle{authordate3}. So, when I cite in the text I get this:

"some text some text some text (Name, 2015, p. 23)."

I'm a new LaTex user (just started using it a couple of weeks ago!), and till now I've managed to solve my problems just googling them, but this time it wont work, because I don't know how is the name of this style and that's why I couldn't look for it.

Thank you for the help!

I did it! this: \bibpunct[: ]{(}{)}{;}{a}{}{,} before \begin{document} solved everything!
